Had to darn near tackle that KATHARINE GOLDING to the ground and hogtie her to get her to stay while we rounded up an even dozen today, but we somehow managed it! I hope we didn't rough you up too badly?
We also welcomed a first-time visitor, MIKE MARSH, to the cribbage table today. He didn't finish in the money, but he did finish in 4th place, which ain't too shabby, considering this was his first cribbage tournament! We hope you'll be back again soon Mike!
ROBIN KING was the first to score a 24-hand, grabbing THE CHICKEN (and $5.) But she wasn't able to hang onto it for long. As I recall, STEVE WENNSTROM took it away from her, but his hopes of keeping it were dashed when THE CHICKEN flapped its wings over to HARLEY MIEDEMA (aka CHICKEN MAN) when he scored the final 24-hand of the day. Harley also earned more Grass Roots Points today when he finished in THIRD PLACE with 14 Game Points!
The DIRECTOR'S AWARD went unclaimed today, so if you score the first 23 hand next week, it will be worth $10 to you.
The RAGGEDY JULIA also went unclaimed. We added an additional $11 to that pot today, bringing the starting total next week up to $37.
JULIA BICK had a strong SECOND PLACE finish today. Julia had a slight lead on me when she and I played against each other in our 9th and final game, but her cards went cold and I left her still standing behind the skunk line when I went out. (Before you go feeling too sorry for poor Julia, take a look at the 2nd Quarter and Year-to-Date stats!) Way to go Julia!
We will be playing next SATURDAY at the Vashon Eagles. Same start time: 1:00 p.m. I hope to see you then!
